on the cards. he got rid of virtually the entire top leadership of al-qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who eventually was caught. >> now we agree. bring bush back. >> i don't see this as partisan. i am not making it partisan. >> you keep talking about the two presidents and this is america. if a come play sen see is our biggest enemy we should work together and say, look, do you trust the government, or do you not? skepticism is healthy in a democracy. every bit of skepticism they got today and for the administration was the same as the bush administration. i think that is probably a good thing. >> doesn't decimate mean you destroy everything but one-10th of one percent? >> i am not sure of the exact definition. >> can you get back to me 1234* we are talking talking about al-qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt. today america is stronger and al-qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al-qaeda's leadership. >> al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin laden is dead. >> we december saw -- decimated al-qaeda central and eliminated osama bin laden. >> al-qaeda is m
leadership of al qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who was eventually caught. >> why are we making this -- i don't see this as partisan. the most dangerous -- we keep talking about the two presidents, this is america, and if complacency is our biggest enemy, we should all work together and say look, do you trust the government or not. skepticism, healthy in a democracy, and every bit of skepticism they got today for the administration was the same as the bush administration used to do. i think that's probably a good thing. >> decimate means you destroy everything but 10%? >> i think maybe, not sure about the technical definition. >> can you get back to me while we roll the tape where they talk about al qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt today america is stronger and al qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al qaeda's leadership. al qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin laden is dead. >> we decimated al qaeda central, we eliminated osama bin laden. >> al qaeda is much weaker than it was when i came into office. >> osama bin laden is dead and general motors is
by osama bin laden when he was leading al qaeda. they weren't always followed and they didn't always trigger this kind of response. >> exactly. richard aeengel, thanks to you. there's been a higher threat level, a lot of extra security there but they're telling you this is unrelated to what is going on in the middle east and in north africa. >> it is, andrea. what we're hearing from former and current military and intelligence officials in pakistan is that although it is a separate incident that they're dealing with in pakistan, it is certainly when you take a step back and look at it parallel in many ways. over the weekend in islamabad the capital city of pakistan was shut down. we are told this was prompted by an intelligence intercept of communications, possibly between two taliban leaders, talking about a potential target attack in islamabad. maybe on a pakistani target though. not necessarily on american or international target. we're told that could have been navy force -- sorry. air force target or a navy installation or even an intelligence office in or around the capital. wh
senior al qaeda leaders and no warning since the killing of osama bin laden in may of 2011. something serious they've heard. i also think this is the reaction of the benghazi scandal. the administration does want to look like it's lax on security and not being aggressive enough. i think they're also being very, very broad in terms of shutting down so many embassies to be careful politically. >> if something else were to happen, of course, a lot of people critical of not having done enough. mark, i want to turn to you on this. we heard a lot over the last decade about how much al qaeda has been weakened by the war on terror, but does this contradict that? do these closures suggest they are stronger than we've been led to believe? >> i don't want to say it's contradicted and david has put his finger on it. the fact of the matter is we've always known despite the killing of osama bin laden that there's been a series of franchise organizations directly related to al qaeda. they've been in the caucuses in the north africa and the al qaeda which committed attacks in amgeria, as well as in l
. >>gretchen: let's talk a little bit about what's being revealed about the night of the osama bin laden raid. >>brian: there is something we don't know? >>gretchen: there's photos coming out of the situation room. hillary clinton had her hand over her mouth and everyone was at ten alternative and we're watching -- was attentive and we're watching leon panetta give them the breakdown of what happened in that raid. apparently osama bin laden was killed around 3 p.m. washington, d.c. time. remember the president came out late that night, somewhere around 10 or 11 to say to the american public osama bin laden had been killed. now his former personal assistant is saying in an interview that later on at night the president was doing something that some people might be surprised at. >> typically like the weekends he'll work like a half day. and this sunday, i mean we worked -- i mean, we were there until almost, i think he went on tv at midnight, almost midnight, and sat around in the private dining room kind of like -- most people were in the situation room and he was like i'm not going to be down
of going after al qaeda directly. i don't think the administration that got osama bin laden, rhetorical bluster didn't bring oun osama bin laden, actual intelligence and aggressive maneuvers ron insana side of pakistan did. i don't think the former dictators in libya or in egypt would think that this president has been weak. i think what we've seen is a president who has tried to get the united states to conform and comport with the sort of moral standing that -- >> i don't think -- now i feel i need to counter on the other side, becae the fact of the matter is barack obama has adopted policies that i think have actually been less targeted. he will fire drones into countries where we aren't even at war. when we had a plan, a policy, a program that would allow us to go and snatch terrorists out like khalid sheikh mohammed. bring them out without killing their 4-year-old daughters, without killing their grandmothers, without killing everybody in the general vicinity. and i've got to say, nothing that he has done has made us comport to international standards more than under george w. bush
succeeded osama bin laden zawahiri. the two men reportedly agreed that they wanted to do something big. timed to the end of the muslim holy month of ramadan which is right now. and that's what led the united states to close 19 embassies. there they are on the map and consulates in the mideast and africa. there's still a lot that remains unknown including which target. over the weekend, one thing clear from every lawmaker and official with knowledge of the attack, nobody's crying wolf here. this is one of the most serious threats in years. >> been an awful lot of hatter out there, chatter means conversations among terrorists about the planning that's going on, very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11. this is the most serious threat that i've seen in the last several years. >> we need to know and realize we're living in an increasingly dangerous world and this many specific threat that we've been briefed on over and over again has reached a new level. >> i must say this is probably one of the most specific incredible threats i've seen perhaps since 9/11 because of the specificity, becau
is in afghanistan, alongside osama bin laden and kaurted and went back to prison and escaped from prison. >> what is going on with these prison breaks? >> it's scary. >> this was while ago but we had someone the last couple of weeks as well. >> the last couple of weeks very dramatic prison breaks. over a thousand taliban prisoners were able to escape in the hinterlands. a couple of days ago 4,000 prisoners walked out of leppo prisoner after islamic state of iraq launched an attack on that prison. we have seen prison breaks in iraq and abu ghraib and elsewhere. some of them gotten out we never will see again but unfortunately we will see some again and we will find out they are as dedicated what they were sent there to begin with. >> general, what do we need to do? what is the strategy moving forward? because when it comes to the middle east, obviously, we are getting out of iraq and afghanistan. we are helping some of the rebels some syria. seems like we are relying on drones to go after so many targets now. what is the strategy moving forward? >> i think we have probably done about as well as we
was the president doing the night osama bin laden was taken out by navy s.e.a.l.s. he had a chance to speak recently, had interesting information about what the president was doing. take a listen. >> most people were down in the situation room, he is like i am not going to be down there, i can't watch this entire thing, so he, myself, pete, the white house photographer, we must have played 15 games of spades. >> there you go. there's a picture of the president during this pivotal moment in american history. >> begs the question what he was doing the night of benghazi. maybe he was playing spades, cards upstairs. >> he was bowling. >> eric bolling. you're next. >> i'm next. if you have a few minutes, go online, check out "the new york times." rarely do i say that, but this is amazing, unease at the clinton foundation over finance and ambition. outlines questionable financial dealings, hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. cronyism. by the way, this clinton foundation may be the headquarters for hillary's 2016 presidential run. worth the time to read it. interesting read. >> also done remarkably g
tower rises above the new york skyline and al qaeda's on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> let's bring in cnn security analyst peter bergen. peter, you heard the president say last fall that al qaeda was on the path to defeat but now you see this. is this a result of a reorganization of al qaeda? does it appear as though it is still a threat or even more so of a threat than it once was even with the removal of bin laden and several of the lieutenants? >> well, fredericka, al qaeda hasn't attacked the united states since 9/11. since july 7th, 2005.the west - and under the obama administration, almost the entire top leadership is either killed in drone strikes or in the case of bin laden killed in a navy s.e.a.l. raid and the documents recovered from the bin laden compound paint an organization that well under the pressures they were under and thinking of moving from western pakistan where all the drones are concentrated in to a remote area of afghanistan, a web of the al qaeda brand has been tarnished by the actions of al qaeda in iraq, et cetera, et cetera. so that port
in the arabian peninsula. known as aqap. it is one of the most active and dangerous branches of the network osama bin laden founded. u.s. state department ordered americans out of the country tuesday, after u.s. intelligence officials intercepted communications between aqap and al qaeda al- zawahri. they say al-zawahri urged his followers in yemen to launch a major attack before the end of ramadan. the muslim holy week ends later this week. alfonso van marsh, wjz eyewitness news. >> the recent terror alert also triggered a other than wag for americans traveling overseas and prompted u.s. officials to temporarily close 19 embassies and consulates in the middle east and africa. >>> drivers, as we know, they come and go allidate at -- all day at gas stations. but this made a lasting impression. can you say that? a man crashed his rental car into the gas station in college hill, ohio. his car went to protect the pumps -- struck the barriers meant to protect the pumps. but guess what he does? the driver gets oust of the -- out of the car and hails a cab. trying to get away from the scene. fortunately,
the state department has issued a worldwide travel alert for americans, it's the first since osama bin laden was killed. it warns terrorists may elect to use a variety of means and weapons and target both official and private interests. that warning in effect through august. security is also being increased across the u.s. out of what authorities are calling an abundance of caution although they say there is no specific threat to the homeland and joint chiefs of staff general martin dempsey says the threat is specific and serious. >> a significant threat stream and we're reacting to it. >> is the threat to employee up an embassy, a consulate or something else? >> that part of it is unspecified, but the intent seems clear. the intent is to attack western, not just u.s. interests. >> now, the focus is on the al qaeda branch in yemen where experts say the terror group is on the rise. we have complete coverage for you. nbc's kristen well kearse at the white house and nbc news foreign news correspondent richard engel is in cairo. what's the latest there. >> reporter: i'm still struck by that map
is someone very close to top al qaeda leadership and was once osama bin laden's secretary. lastly, the group in yemen has been attacked quite aggressively by yemeni fources and saudi forces and american drones and therefore is looking for an opportunity for revenge. >> nbc's richard engel reporting in cairo. thank you. >>> joining to us continue this conversation is democratic senator from oregon, jeff markly. senator, good to have you here. obviously, as we have been talking about off the top of this hour it's the new normal of what is taking place in relation to the embassy closings. i want to play more from what we heard from richard haass this morning on "morning joe." >> this is not an exception. this is in some ways the inevitable result of a middle east that is increasely careening out of control and the problem is not strong governments but weak governments who are not in control of large things that go on within their boardses. >> so talking there about the weak governments. again, to remind everybody whether it comes to our embassies we rely heavily on the country's courtesy where
the same kind of international profile osama bin laden had wants to put himself on the world stage and asking his most effective assassin to do that. you asked about the drone campaign, a follow-up to what bobby was saying. al qaeda did control a piece of the country. either not just a drone campaign. there is an active war by the yemeni government that the u.s. is involved with in southern yemen. >> bob, i want to caulk aboutta, operational as the united states government says it is, as concerned as the u.s. government says it is. you've pointed out, they haven't been very successful. >> well, i think the key thing here is that what you have is a situation where they certainly have not been able to kill the top leaders. what you have here three leaders targeted last week remain active, including al wuhayshi. i think that is something that is very worth questioning. because if you are pressing such a drone cam fein as the u.s. is and the top three guys are still active, still operational, that does call into question its effectiveness. >> bobby ghosh, the stability of the yemen gov
with we may have taken out osama bin laden and decimated a good part of the central command of al qaeda, we must continue to realize and we tend to forgot that these franchise cells throughout the middle east have proliferated and it's extraordinary important for us to understand why that threat is diffused for that very reason. >> let's talk about one of those cells. we keep hearing about al qaeda in the arab peninsula. they have an incredibly skilled bombmaker. what else can you tell us about them and how they might be involved? >> it's unclear at this point. there were tli drone strikes in yemen five days last week and a lot of activity going on there. they tried to carry out the 2009 bombing of an airliner flying in detroit that was an underwear bomb. there is increasing sophisticating from that in yemen. problems in yemen troops have been sort of not fighting. they have been rebelling against the government. i think yemen is a real challenge for the obama administration. they have tried to use drone strikes there. they have tried training and it has not worked well. i think they mi
qaeda. sources are telling cnn that osama bin laden's successor, ayman al-zawahiri sent a letter saying, do something. the chatter set off all of this. nick payton walsh is watching this developing. nick, it has been five days since we first became aware of this terrorist threat and what we have seen today, the threat is clearly still ongoing. so why else would the u.s., why would briton, those folks be getting out of yemen? >> reporter: well, certainly the threat whilst being starved, anything from west africa, bangladesh to yemen, even though they thought it would be last sunday, it's ongoing. no one is clear where this is coming from. the state department is continuing to evaluate new information. that withdrawal of diplomatic staff you've been talking about, that has been emotional for a couple of days. the u.s. did repeat its normal travel advice to most americans to get out of yemen and never travel there anyway. a certain escalation on their part today. many asking is it possibly the drone strikes overnight against militants in yemen that may have contributed to that that now bri
, we are accomplishing what we set out to do. because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been handled. the core of al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan is on the way to defeat. that happened because of you. because of you, more afghans are re-claiming their communities, their markets, their schools, their towns. they have a chance to forge their own future. because of you, more afghans are trained in stepping up and defending their own country. because of you and to preserve the gains you fought and bled for, we are going to make sure that afghanistan is never again a source of attacks against our country. that happened because of you. so the war in afghanistan will end, for you that means fewer deployments, more training time, preparing for the future, getting back to what marines do better than anybody else on earth, amphibious operations. it means more time here on the home front with your families, your wives, your husbands, your kids. but, of course, the end of the war in afghanistan doesn't mean the end of threats to our nation. as
liberties they nor match for government. this is osama bin laden's wildest dream, that the american people would do this to themselves. >> dianne feinstein claimed the nsa has prevented attacks. there's been no evidence that's the case, and tsa claims it stopped plots but there's been no evidence. and the one thing we do know historically is that the few would-be bombers and hijackers that have been stopped, have been stopped by fellow passengers. we can protect ourselves and we need to remember we have more power than we ever give ourselves credit for, and utilize it and we'll be far safer under that basis. so, one over there in then -- you can -- >> i'm particularly conflicted on this matter because i usually like to evaluate both sides of an issue and when i attend events like this, i usually hear one side of it, and i would really like to hear you poke holes in the other side and i'd like to use this opportunity ask you a very specific question. ... >> it would not be good security. if you tipoff the bad guys you won't find in that same way again. the hypothetical is -- >> at think you
telling the post, there are owned by an arab country and ran the osama bin laden tapes. i would not trust them. cable channels rely on advertisers for upwards of half of their total revenue. the other half coming from monthly fees. so far al jazeera america getting a backlash. ashley: it is interesting whether they can get a foothold are not, dennis. >> those who are looking for a different slant on the news, sure. the question is, how large is -- largest that audience. ashley: they have plenty of money. they will worry about sponsors. >> getting less and less all the time with the oil production. ashley: thank you very much. good point. tracy: a quarter past the hour. time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes. that's it right down to the floor of the new york stock exchange. we have had back-and-forth action and a lot going forward this week. what are you thinking? >> and thinking i can't wait for this week to be overt. >> you can't think that. think something else. >> everyone is going to look forward to the fed minutes, probably the most important item to try and get a handle on exactl
that osama bin laden thought had the best chance of really being powerful and causing a long-term threat. the information is vague. it is from intercepts. although it's not, thank goodness, the meta data from the u.s. because there's no evidence of their being contact with somebody in the u.s. to be captured in that metadata. there's a reference in what's been heard to the enemy, not specific, which leads people to think it's probably the u.s., but could also be western europe. finally, there's some indication that what makes this so scary is that the chatter is going back and forth in part between al qaeda in yemen and core al qaeda which is loosely based still in pakistan, the tribal areas, afghanistan, maybe even the top figure in al qaeda now with bin laden gone, amman zawahiri. this looks scarier than some of the chatter they pick up. >> put this in a perspective over the past ten years, let's say. it used to be we heard of the chatter going on around the clock. we had a discussion yesterday on "meet the press" about the about of al qaeda to still strike, compared to five, six, seve
the navy seal team six. that's the same unit that killed osama bin laden. >>> she wanted to see a rhino up close. so a woman at the denver zoo made an extra $60 for a special meet and greet. but the animal wasn't on board, not as friendly. he attacked her, biting her finger when she reached out to feed it. >> he's not in trouble. we do not believe this was an aggressive action. i think this was just a very terrible, unfortunate accident. >> gretchen: no word on her condition this morning. the denver zoo has suspended its rhino meet and greet program. i guess it's a good idea. >>> we showed you the video. a woman gets called on stage to sing a duet with kristen chenowith. little did kristen know the fan could really belt it out. ♪ ♪ >> oh, sing it, sing it! >> gretchen: we just found out that fan who happens to be a vocal coach was just invited back to the stage. the hollywood bowl asking her to perform again next month. you never know, eric. you've got to be in the right place at the right time. >> eric: you know why the rhino bit the lady's finger off? the zoo charged 60 bucks. the rh
people would say that president obama the very right to launch azeinab badawi race that killed osama bin laden. history and diplomacy co-exist. they interact with each other and they sometimes can complement each other. richard holbrooke, the late richard holbrooke, great american diplomat, i don't think he would have been able to secure the peace in bosnia had we not used force for six weeks to demonstrate to the bosnian-serb army that we were not going to permit them to continue to kill innocent muslims. and it was that use of force that achieved the cease-fire and drove them to the negotiating table where holbrook worked his magic and brought peace to bosnia after five years of war. so there are times when we have to rely on our military and we're fortunate, as all of you know, to have extraordinary young men and women in our military and the army and the navy and the air force, marines and the coast guard and the national guard. [applause] and, like you, who just applauded, i admire the american military. they are absolutely critical to our security. one of the proudest moments of my
this or you are on the side of osama bin laden. but the media didn't expose this for really what it was at the time, and then you move on to the war in iraq, and, again, i -- i mean, i sound like a broken record, repeating some of the stuff that snowden is saying, but at the time, all of that talk about all of the lies we heard from the bush administration, it was the job at the people at that white house briefing to kick the tires and challenge the assertions, and get us the truth, and they never did. they never challenged weapons of mass destruction, to point out -- we didn't find out there weren't any until we invaded the country. >> yeah, it was too late. >> bill: everybody repeated this mushroom cloud crap from condy rice, as if it were true. and colin powell talked about this mobile missile launchers that they have -- he even had a drawing of them, that they could move ash the country, the whole thing. and didn't exist. and there were voices at the time, there were former un inspectors at the time, who were saying we haven't seen any evidence of weapons of mass destruction,
and supporting terrorism. they killed osama bin laden, but they're with al qaeda in terms of egypt, which is just bizarre. >> reporter: it doesn't really make any sense when you think that the administration acquiesced in the removal of morsi, but on the other hand, the united states doesn't want the egyptian military to absolutely crush dissent because that's a prescription for long civil war that would be very destabilizing and call into question the future ability of egypt to maintain its obligations with israel and everything. >> yep. hotspots all over the place over there. john harwood, thank you. see you later. >> reporter: you bet. >>> we're going to get in a quick break here. when we return, why one insider says forget about larry summers and janet yellen because tim geithner could be the man to follow ben bernanke. >>> first as we head to break, let's check on the national weather forecast with the weather channel's alex wallace. alex. >> good morning to you. it's going to be a hot one across the upper midwest. a lot of areas thought we were done with summer. not the case. extensive heat
years al qaeda core has been greatly diminished, not least because of the elimination of osama bin laden. what is also true is that al qaeda and affiliated organizations represent a continued threat to the united states. >> welcome back to "morning joe." it is 22 past the hour. >> 8:22 a.m. eastern time. >> that's when you're at your best, 8:22. that's where you peak. so nicole, it's so fascinating listening to the obama administration talking about the threat from al qaeda. they are balancing so many of the same things that the bush administration balanced. what's interesting is when they put america on high alert, you don't have everybody in the press going, are they doing this for political reasons. aren't you waiting for the first major newspaper to make that suggestion? i haven't heard it yet. >> it is interesting. i think this is a place where where else do we have representative king and jay carney saying exactly the same thing, singing from exactly the same song sheet. it gives us reinsurance about the truth of something incredibly dire and depressing, the threat of terrorism is
, for a one word answer. do you believe that osama bin laden hid for five yearsçó in pakistan without anyone in the pakistani military intelligence knowing about it? >> no, i don't believe it. >> okay, then i'm going to ask you for a 10-word answer. ( laughter ). >> i don't think, now this is my opinion, i'm not backing this up with hard facts. i don't think general kiani knew that, i don't think there was a plan on where he was. but this was 700 meters from the gates of west point. now who know what is 700 meeters from the gates of our west point. but the reality is it was a very distinct come pound, it was like that funny house at the end of the street where people didn't act the same as everybody necessary the neighborhood, in an area why people are not naturally trusting. so somebody facilitated something. now, i sort of buy into the idea that the ambassador and i were talking, it probably was not official, but it could be someone who's got relationship with an official who is providing the help and there is a failure to ask questions that needed to be asked. there's a failure to due dil
